    The Day I Played on the Freeway

    This past Saturday was the Play on the Freeway Day on the new 210 freeway in Rialto. The freeway will officially be open at the end of this year and will connect all the way to the 215 bringing San Bernardino much closer to the San Gabriel Valley. Well by freeway anyway.

    So we decided to go to the festivities on this day where there were games and train rides for the kiddies, rock climbing walls, face painting, arts and crafts and a great car show. It was hotter than hades but they were selling water for a buck and hot dogs for 66 cents so it was all good.

    I got some interesting shots of the freeway that I'm sure we will never see again in long time. These were taken with my Kodak V803 Pocket camera. I'm still saving for my Canon Rebel.



    This was the off ramp from the freeway.





    This was the on ramp to the freeway. Interesting sight to see people walking down it.





    Under the bridge...alot of people where taking shade and shelter there...





    The "Amber Alert" marquees were up and running....



    And this was on the Westbound side of the freeway.....kids were having a grand old time with their skateboards and rollerblades!



    Then at the end there was the car show. Some really nice vehicles were being displayed...I longed for my Canon Rebel, but I did my best.



















    Then I ran into a Bumble Bee look-a-like. But this was a Lamborghini, Bumble Bee is a camaro....




    Still, I was waiting for this car to get up and take form.....





    A bad Azz Woody Woodpecker...




    And that was all. On the way out I ran into some police officers on horseback, ON the freeway.....






    But I also ran into a big pile of...well....horse droppings...I'll spare you the picture. I didn't really take one but there ya go!

    I hope you enjoyed. It was a very interesting experience but now I guess I can say I have played on the Freeway.

    THE END

    Great pictures. I played on the I-10 when they built our central avenue underpass.

    Wow! Thats really interesting! That would be strange to walk on a freeway before its going to be used for thousands of cars zooming by at 80 MPH....

    How fun for you Clara! And I can't believe all the people that showed up to play on the freeway.

    And I can't WAIT to take the 210 back from San Bernadino!

    The 210 will certainly make drive time less. It was fun. Can't wait for it to open.
